Super Eagles forward Samuel Chukwueze got the highest rating despite AC Milan’s home loss to Borussia Dortmund in Group F of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.
Chukwueze opened his goals account for Milan as he drew the Italian giants level on 37 minutes with a brilliant goal on 37 minutes.
The former Villarreal player beat two markers after cutting in from the left and drilled a low shot into the back of the net.
However, it was not enough as Dortmund scored two more goals to win 3-1.
The defeat means Milan’s round of 16 qualification chances are now minimal.
The seven-time Champions League winners are bottom in the group on five points and will hope result go their way in the final group game to reach the last 16.
Despite the defeat, SempreMilan awarded Chukwueze Seven out of 10, which is the highest rating among Milan players.
“What a way to score your first goal for Milan,” the media outfit wrote. “In that moment, we all saw exactly why the Rossoneri paid a lot of money for him this summer. For the rest of the game, however, he didn’t have as much success but he’s still the MOTM.”
Chukwueze missed the Super Eagles’ 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Lesotho and Zimbabwe due to injury.
The coaching crew will hope he stays injury-free as they prepare for the 2023 AFCON in Côte d’Ivoire.
